Move over Greg Ellingson and Brad Sinopoli, there’s a new pair of buds in town..
And their names are Kevin Elliott and Brian Tyms. The duo are best friends, and have been since college, they make music together (I think I speak for all of us when I ask, can you guys give us a sample?!?) and now they’ve both signed in Hamilton as members of the Tiger-Cats.
It’s been six years since they’ve played together and now they’re finally reunited – weird how life works!
Talking to both of them in separate phone conversations, I definitely could tell these guys are really good friends and have been for a long time. They had nothing but great things to say about each other – mixed in with a few chirps, of course.
(Side note: I wrote a little something else on their relationship and what they’ll bring to the field together over on CFL.ca. Click here to read that!)
I asked both guys the same questions for this special Buds Edition of TMI – some they agreed on and some they definitely didn’t.
